What is "Synthetic fibre" - Definition & Explanation

A man-made fibre made from a polymer that has been produced artificially, in contrast to fibres made from naturally occurring polymers such as cellulose.
Synthetic fibers are the result of an extensive search by scientists to increase and improve upon the supply of naturally occurring animal and plant fibers that have been used in making cloth.
Synthetic fibers used to create upholstery fabric include acetate, acrylic, nylon, rayon and polypropylene.
